Plant Bone
Plant Bone

Spine.  Sorta.  What ARE these things?  And the scar-like marks?  Vertebrae.  (Which is a great word, no?)

And there it lies, sprawled on top of the greenery, nonchalant, just coyly daring me to photograph it.   So I did.

  1. A great photo. I don’t know this plant, but the scars are leaf scars. As the plant grows new leaves, the old ones drop off, leaving these scars.

    1. Why, thank you. I never know what will resonate with other viewers. Actually, when I take the photo, I’m not even sure it will resonate with me! The phone camera is a fickle tool; but, as the saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you. I hate carrying stuff around, so phone camera it is.
